- Starring: Tony Danza, Dean Stockwell, Majandra Delfino
"Tony Danza (Who's the Boss?) returns to television as a divorced sportswriter raising two teenaged daughters in this charming comedy."
"Tony DiMeo (Tony Danza) misses the old days. The days when he could bang out his sports column on a noisy typewriter. The days when athletes were role models, not millionaires. The days when kids always listened to their parents. Well, two out of three. These days, Tony has an assistant, computer- whiz Carmen, to get his column e-mailed successfully to his editor. And sports - well, it seems no one cares about the game anymore. Plus, Tony's raising moody Tina (16) and hypochondriac Mickey (13) on his own since his wife took the "job of a lifetime" and moved out of state. It's a challenging life, to say the least."
"More often than not, Tony's overwhelmed by all the women in his life - it's hard to be a man's man when he's surrounded by estrogen. But despite Tina's tantrums, Mickey's illnesses, and Tony's frequent technological breakdowns, the DiMeo family is never short on love. When Tony feels like it's bottom of the ninth, bases loaded and he's at bat with two strikes, he just looks at his DiMeo team in the dugout and knows everything will work out fine." (NBC press release)
NBC's entertainment president at the time, Warren Littlefield, gave the series a 22 episode commitment based on Tony Danza's name alone. He then proceeded to debut it in a tough time slot with no lead-in smack in the middle of NBC's coverage of the World Series -- which would be preempting it every other week its first month on the air. Gee, and it's a mystery why it lasted as long as it did? The final 8 episodes out of that 22 were not produced.
The Tony Danza Show is produced by Katie Face Productions / Kokoro Productions / NBC Studios, in association with Columbia TriStar Television.
"I smile every day
About something my father would say
What we got
Yeah, it can't be bought
We got a lot
And it's true what he says
We got love every day
We got love"
